Dialogue vital to achieving new type of major country ties, says vice-premier

Chinese and US officials stressed the importance of cooperation and putting aside differences as the two countries began the fifth round of the China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue on Wednesday.

US Vice-President Joe Biden said the dialogue is essential to bilateral relations and called for more trust to be built between the two countries.

"We don't have to agree on everything — we have to trust," he said in his address at the opening of the event in Washington, adding that competition is good and cooperation is essential.

Biden and the dialogue's four co-chairmen, Vice-Premier Wang Yang, State Councilor Yang Jiechi, US Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, all emphasized the importance of boosting cooperation and also managing differences.

Wang said the summit between President Xi Jinping and US President Barack Obama a month ago reached important consensus and has pointed a clear direction for the two countries to build a new type of major relationship.
